Outdoor Track?

21

We’re hosting a meet this weekend. We always host one this weekend. The decathlon and heptathlon start today and everything else is tomorrow. It’s still pretty cold out (~40 degrees) and rainy. Officials and the timing system manager are suggesting we do it inside…..even going so far as to see if we have 100m of straightaway to run the first event on our indoor track (we didn’t). We’re about to start in a couple minutes and after the 100m we’ll be moving inside for all the field events. This begs the question…when the weather is so bad you need to contest your outdoor meets indoors is it really outdoor track?
